The Beaver Family of Puslinch Township
By Edna (Beaver) Robertson 1969

Peter Beaver (II) - 1st son of Peter Beaver

He was the eldest son of Peter I and was born in Alsace on Oct. 21, 1806. When he came to Puslinch in 1832, he was 26 years old and unmarried. Old records state that he was a Lutheran in religion, then Evangelical and a Liberal in politics. He was given lot 25 and he cleared 50 acres of his farm. Peterís tombstone in Crown Cemetery, Morriston, states that he died Dec. 21, 1876, aged 70 years, 2 months. This old white marker is near the newer marker of the Nicholas Beaver family. It is interesting to note that Crown Cemetery is on lot 28. The first burial was in the early 1830ís but no records of burials were kept for more than 50 years. Each time a plot was required, it was chosen at random.

His first wife was Christina Yantz whose sister, Charlotte, married Peterís brother, Nicholas. They had two daughters.

1. Christina
2. Magdalena, born June 3, 1834.

After the death of his first wife, he married Catherine Saloma Motz, who was born in Germany in 1814. She died in Gagetown, MI on Sept. 11, 1899 and is buried in Grant Cemetery. They had five children.

1. Christian, born Dec. 1841

2. Henry (Big Jim), born Feb. 10, 1850

3. Michael, born 1852

4. Louisa, born Sept 26th, ?

5. Frederick, born March 12, 1859

14 Military Funeral At Penrith

On Tuesday, for the second time in ten days, the soldiers of the Canadian Forestry Corps stationed at Penrith and Cliburn assembled at the Penrith Cemetery to pay their last tribute of respect to a dead comrade and on this occasion the remains of Private W. Van Vlack, of the Cliburn Company were interred alongside those of Sergt. Ploethner, who was killed a fortnight ago.

Private Van Vlack, who was only 19 years of age, came from Picton, Ontario. For some weeks he had been seriously ill and despite every care and attention at Fusehill War Hospital at Carlisle he passed away on Sunday. The news of his death became speedily known in Penrith and neighbourhood, and it created a painful impression, because the young soldier had made many friends. He had acted as motor driver for Major Walker, the officer commanding at Cliburn, and in that capacity was well known in Penrith, while the relations between his major and he were of a most intimate nature.

The funeral was hurriedly arranged for Tuesday afternoon, and was in every way impressive, it being the express wish of the commanding officer that full military honours should be paid. With this object in view Major Walker obtained the services of the band of the South Lancashire Regiment, which was in the town in connection with the rally of the members of the O.M.A..A..C. and the Womenís Land Army . The attendance of the general public was very large, and while no doubt many were attracted by the military nature of the ceremony, several people attended with a genuine desire to show their sympathy and respect. It had been again wisely decided to exclude the public from the Cemetery, and only the deceasedís comrades were at the graveside.

The coffin had been taken to the Drill Hall, and it was from there that the funeral procession started. The coffin, covered with the flag and surmounted with the soldierís cap, was carried on the carriage used a fortnight ago. The firing party marched first, then followed the band, and then a detachment of about fifty men from Cliburn, under Lieut. And Adjutant Reeve, and about the same number from the Beacon, under Lieut. and Adjutant Glanfield. The service at the church and at the grave was conducted by the chaplain, Capt. Edminson.

15 Obtained from the Weyauwega, Waupaca Co., Wisconsin Newspaper Obituary section, by M. R. Price as follows:

With the death of Adam Monroe Ballard , which occurred at his home in this village on Thursday evening, August 25, 1927, Weyauwega again mourns the passing of one of the last of its fast disappearing Civil War veterans.

The deceased had been ill for about six weeks and death was caused by arteriosclerosis.

On Oct 17,1868 he was united in marriage with Miss. Emma Jane Baker, at Ogdensburg, Wisconsin, by the Rev. Eli Green. After residing on a farm in the town of Royalton for many years, they retired to the village of Weyauwega, which has been their home ever since.

19 (2005). "Hunsberger." Canadian Mennonite Encyclopedia Online. Mennonite Historical Society of Canada. Retrieved 23 Feb 2005

Hunsberger is a Mennonite family name, evidently Swiss in origin, found in the Franconia (PA) and Ontario districts of the Mennonite Church (MC). Bishop Henry Hunsberger (1768-1854) of the Blooming Glen, PA Mennonite congregation (MC) was assistant moderator of the Franconia Conference in 1847 by virtue of being second in seniority in years of service as a bishop. Because the moderator, Bishop John Hunsicker (d. 17 November 1847), sympathized with the vision and concerns of John H. Oberholtzer and sat with the Oberholtzer party in the Franconia meetinghouse on 7 October 1847 when the final secession of the Oberholtzer group occurred, Hunsberger served as moderator of the October 1847 session of the Franconia Conference. Jacob B. Hunsberger (1836-1919) served as preacher in the Coventry and Vincent congregations of the Franconia Conference from 1877 until his death over 41 years later. Christian R. Hunsberger (1823-1906) was a preacher in the Upper Skippack congregation (MC) of the Franconia Conference from 1879 until 1906. The Ontario Mennonite (MC) preachers included Abraham K. Hunsberger (1827-1889) of the Moyer congregation, and Noah Hunsberger, who was ordained preacher in 1903 and served in Sherkston and Waterloo. Bishop Ephraim Hunsberger (1814-1904) of the Eastern District Conference of the General Conference Mennonite Church (GCM) served as preacher in the Hereford congregation (GCM) beginning in 1849. In 1852 he moved to Wadsworth, Medina Co., Ohio, where he organized a congregation which he served for 50 years.
